Will the new construction help traffic? I doubt it. We could have 16 lane highways and we still would have jammed traffic. I used to like to use the Crosstown through Edina. It was fun to mix it up with the Jaguars and Bentley's. Sadly these people are probably using their helicopters to get to work now.
Thanks to being slightly unprepared even though I figured this knucklehead was going to make this move the pictures came out blurry. What you can see is this guy cutting in front of me. What you can't see in the vehicle that was in the left lane just ahead of him and he was traveling I would guess at 65 or 70 in a 55MPH zone. You can see he is not alone. You can also see he's a dumb ass. What you can't also see is he stopped at a red light to take a left on Hwy 7.
I am always going out on a limb, so who's the problem here? Me or the other truck? Having a truck ride your as at 70MPH or more is nerve racking enough but hitting the brakes isn't going to make the situation any better. I hope "Jake The Crier" reads this so he can see that I don't care for this too much.
As this guy pulled off my favorite move this FUV came up on my right side fast. I don't think the Taurus ever saw him causing the FUV to dart in front of me. Not the wisest choice but I actually was paying attention for once and not fiddling around with my cameras so everything turned out okay. With the passengers in the car, what would you say to a driver who makes this maneuver with you in the car? My response most likely would be a slap upside the head. Quiet but to the point.
I can honestly say I have never had to shovel one of my vehicles.
